Default Pastor Winthrop Over at FRDB

Pastor Winthrop, who's pretty much a new character over at Freeratio, has, obviously, decided to start posting in E/C. He's very hostile.

Would anyone like to post responses to his posts?

Tell him to drop a line at TR! for a real debate without the strict rules. I would enjoy the lopsided debate.

He's on a very short leash at the moment. He revealed himself as a reincarnation of past users. I think he's exhausted his trolling abilities. I'm waiting to see if I can ban him because I don't know if I have the authority to ban.

I think you get banned for mentioning other boards. You used to at any rate.

I dunno if Mr. Sport's insults are necessarily random. At least not with Eric. And, nominally, not with anyone that holds him to task.

He reminds me more of Ghost Of Paley who used to troll at ATBC before he finally 'fessed up.

I was just about to say that exact thing. I just glanced through his thread and this post raised immediate alarm bells:

I raised the question about him being GOP and he basically admitted it was him, doing it because he was bored.

If he's got no more talent in a "debate" than GOP then he's gonna starve waiting for me to feed him again.

If it's GoP, just send him this link. He'll be fascinated for days.

I don't understand your problem with it. Even if they are most likely gay. :drool:

Hmm...Framingham, MA. Weird place for a religious fundamentalist. Framingham is on Rt. 128, which is the Massachusetts equivalent of Silicon Valley, except way more liberal. Lots of MIT geeks live there.

It would be like finding a hippie commune in Kentucky.

Now, now. Not all trolls are bad. Some of us are actually quite amiable, just so long as no one says anything so shockingly stupid as to require immediate public shaming.

That said, please keep Pastor Winthrop away from this forum. Every thread he posts in turns into a hundred-page trainwreck. If that's not enough reason, check out this:

That's not true. I kept getting banned and had to create new IDs.

I did use proxies and cookie crumble towards the end of my time there.

Overall, I'd say it was job well done.
Classy.

His latest greatest round of trolling included some gems, just go search over there for Max Factor and compare the style(s)

Does this forum have a set of standards that frowns on moving the same sort of road show here?
There are Atheists here, but noone like the extremists Calilasseia and Spearthrower. I feel at home here.
Hey Calilasseia, you're famous!
